Laura Reilly
Baird and Warner
About Laura

Prior to living in Gurnee, I had moved with my family 4 times in 5 years – in some instances across the country -- and am very familiar with the needs and anxieties faced by today’s buyers and sellers. My buyer and seller clients have come to rely on my help in making their moves as financially rewarding and stress-free as possible. I look forward to putting this experience to work for you! I didn’t know it at the time, but my many years in Customer Service have proven invaluable in my real estate career. My clients know I will listen to them and provide them all the information and support they need to make informed decisions -- and let them make the decisions at their own pace. Communication is critical when purchasing or selling a home. I am almost always available (and have designated back-ups when I’m not). I return calls promptly and make sure my clients are in the loop throughout the entire home buying or home selling process. I love this business because it’s so simple: Treat people well, work hard, keep in touch, give your clients the input they need to make informed decisions, and everything works out! Whether you are looking the perfect home, trying to sell your current home for top value, or just want to “talk real estate”, I look forward to helping you any way I can!
